Genesee Country Village & Museum introduces a new daytime holiday program this December with the Yuletide Open House from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, December 17.

Eight buildings in the Historic Village will be open and filled with holiday activities. Visitors are invited to enjoy a self-guided stroll through the decorated village, discovering tree-lighting traditions along with holiday music, decorations, foods and travel. There’s even an opportunity to visit with St. Nick.

The Open House comes on the final day of the traditional evening Yuletide in the Country theater program (December 1 to 3, 8 to 10, 15 to 17). Cost is $10 for adults/$8 for youth (4 to 18) and $8 for museum members. Children three and under are free. Tickets may be purchased online at www.gcv.org or at the door.

That day the Yuletide buffet (served by the Caledonia Village Inn, reservations required) will begin at 4 p.m. for those who want to dine after the Open House. Buffet is $30 for adults; $16 for youth 2 through 10. The time between can be spent sitting by the fire with a glass of wine or shopping in the Flint Hill Store.

Light snacks will also be available.

GCVM is the largest living history museum in New York State with the largest collection of historic buildings in the Northeast. The museum, with its John L. Wehle Gallery, working brewery, vintage base ball and Genesee Country Nature Center, is open May through October, with a variety of special off-season programs, and located in Mumford, 20 miles southwest of Rochester and 45 miles east of Buffalo.
